Following that success, they again collaborated on the epic Western web-comic The Guns of Shadow Valley, which was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic and a Harvey Award for Best Online Work. His work for larger comic publishers began in 2010 with Robert Bloch's That Hellbound Train (penned by Joe and John Lansdale), for IDW Publishing. Dave's work as a guest artist can also been seen in their Godzilla series, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In 2012 he illustrated the horror fable Night of 1,000 Wolves, also for IDW. That same year brought a nomination for the Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award in comics.2013 saw a collaboration with Steve Niles on Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem for Dark Horse Comics, and a successful Kickstarter campaign to print the hardcover collected edition of The Guns of Shadow Valley, which has also been picked up for publication by Dark Horse in late Summer 2014.
